Since the arrivals mentioned last week of the S/-
mon Coc! and J/enrictla, arrived this week the ship
Elisabeth, belonging to the same convoy, but brings’
no further news.
Not having bad a further possession of the payers
brought by these vessels, we are only able to give
our Readers some turther extracts from some late pa.
pers received. Lord Catheart’s dispatch, given in
our last, goes tothe 20th of Jan., we now continue
the same to the 2th of that month.
London, March 4.—Dispatches have been received fron
Lord Wellington of the idth, and frou Alicant of th
Tthuit&. Phearnay an dic last meationed quaster amounted,
with all its retalorcements of Ltalians, Calabrese, Sicilians,
&e. tv 26,000 men, of which number 9,000 were Kuglish
and Germans. The total of the sorces ¢hat had arrivea
from Sicily was 16,000. Suchet had about 20,000 elivc.
tives to oppose them, and it was reported that Soult lad
deviched 8,000 more to join him. Lord Wellington was
jn excellent health at the date of thé last advices.
Some accounts by the last Cadiz mail speak of disputes
between the Cortes and the Regency, which it was supposed
would termivate in the retirement of the latter.
LONDON, March 16.
A lispatch, of which the following is a copy, has been
received by Viscount Castlereagh, his Majesty's Prin.
cipal Secretary of State for Fureign Affurs, Jrom his
Excellency General viscount Cathcart, K. 7. his Ma-
jesty’s Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentia.
ry to the Court of Russta, dated

By the continuation of the journal of military opera.
tions from the 20th to the 28th of Jan. it appears that on
the 20th of Jan. Prince Schwartzcuberg’s head-quar ters
were at Puitusk, and his advanced posts, which has been
drawn in irom Suy aciotf and Novegrodeg, were established
in Ostiolenka.
I have ne details of the movements of General Sachen’s
View original column on the left, but I hat@husow to believe that it
advanced near the line of the BT~Pupon Warsaw, observ.
ing Regnier’s corps on the left bank of that river, which.
corps, in a tormer report, was stated to have formed a
support to the right of the Austrian auxiliary force.
General Milleradowitch’s column has coutinued to move
from Augustoft by Radziloff and Little Plozk, in the di-
rection of Hudck, a small village west of Novugrodek,
mecting near Lomsa, with General Vassizchikoff’s corps,
which had continued to follow the Austrian advanced posts, ,
and this movement obliged the latter in retire to Ostru:
lenka. ‘
The Field-Marshal’s column, with Which the Emperor
was present in person, moved from Ligue to Johanisbery,
and from thenée to Willenbourg, combining its movemcats,
so as to reach the last named place by the time General
Milloradowitch’s corps could arrive near Pyatnitz on the
27th January.
General Wintzingerode, with astrong corps of light
troops, formed an advanced guard to both these coiumns,
marching by Muschinitz upon Corchel!, and covering the
colintry round that place. ‘These movements have driven
in the advanced posts of the Austrians.
As the Russian drmy was expected again to move on
the 30th apparently in the direction of the Vistula, it
seems probable that the Austrian corps will continue its
inarch and puss tat river.
General Regnier was, on the 19th, at Okunieff, to the
eastward of Warsaw.
The French head.quarters being established at Posen,
it is possible that Regnier, since that dale, may have
marched down the Vistula in that direction, passing behind
(ne rear of the Austriau: but if he should have united
with Prince Schw artzenberg, the reinforcement would not
place their united force in a situation to resist the troops
opposed to them,
Meaww hile the advanced corps on the right, which drove
the enemy from Marienbourg, Elbing, and Durschau, have
coulinued their operations, aud have invested Da .zic.
General Count Platoil’s head-quarters bemg within alew
English miles of that city, in a westeru direction. General
Vount Wittgensteiu has resumed the command of the right
column; and as part, at least, of the orduance intended
fur the siege of Kiga has been secured, it iy probab.e his

Exposé of the situation of the E@pire, presented tu the
Legisletive Body, in the sitting of the 25th of Feb.
by his Excellency Count de Montulivét, Minister o f
the Intertor.
Gentlemen,—Ilis Majesty has ordered me to inform
you of the situation of the Empire in the years 1811) and
(512. You will see with satisfaction, that notwithstand.
ing the great armies, which the state of the maritime and
coutineatal war obliges us to keep on foot, the popula.
tion Continues to increase; that our industry has made
new progress; that the lands have been better cultivated,
nor the manufacturies more tlourishing ; that never ai uny
epoch of our history, have riches been more spread among
the ditierent classes of society.
The simple cultivator @t that time knows enjoyments to
which he was formerly a stranger ; he purchases at a high.
er price such lands as suit him best; his clothing is better,
‘4S foot is more substantial; he rebuilds his houses and
iakes tuem more substantial,
New inventions in’ agriculture. industry, and in the
useful arts, are not rejected, merely because of their be.

for the old routines, ‘The ariilicial Sheep-wa'ks are mul.

nufactures, Our agriculturc, aud ourarmics, become every

range themselves under its banners, has contributed to
the encrease, by multiplying the number of marriages in

populalion, agriculiure, commerce, public works
interior adminisiration, and Marine, occupying
nearly the whole of the Moniteur, and ticv supple.
mentary sheets, of which the following is an ad.
struct :—
Population.—The population of France was, in 1789,
26,000,000 individuals ; (sume persens computes it only
25,000,000, The present population of the Empire is
42,000,000, of which 28,000,000 are contained iv the
Departinents of Old France. This estimate is net found.
ced on mere conjecture, but on an accurate census. It ig
an augmentation of 2,500,000, of nearly oncetenth with.
in 24 years,
Agriculture.—The value of the agricultural produce of
France in corn, wine, and oil, cattle, mineral substances,
&c. is stated at 5,031 ,000,000 livres.
Manufactures.—The value of manufactures of silk,
wool, metal, glass, porcelain, &c. is stated at 1,300,000,
000,. Besides these, it is observed under the head,
New Industry.—That a most importaot revolution is
preparing, which must change all the commercial regula.
tions existing since the discovery of the Indies; these are
manufactures to supply the place of sugar, indigo, and co.
chineal, the value yf which products is stated at 65,000,
000, making in the whole 6,396,000,000. But these sub.
stances are not all yet manufactured so as to be fit for
use; the corn is not made into bread; stuffs are not ma.
nufactured into clothing, by which the difinitive value of
all their values will be augmented at least one tenth, or
639,690,000, and their total value will become 7,035,600
Commerce.—The exportations of France in 1812, are
stated to have amonnted to 383,000,000, The importa.
tion, not including 90,000,000 of specie, to 257,000,000,
The excess of the exportation was 126,000,000. This bas
lance in 1788, the most favorable ancient period, was
oely 75,000,000,
England has, by her Orders in Council, denationalized
all fags. From that time there were no longer neutrals,
no longer regular maritime regulations. ‘This pcriod might
have been critical; England relied upon it; but the vigi.
View original lenee, the ability, the energy of oir government, have
made it an epoch of amilioration; and it is since 1806,
that our industry has made the greatest progress. But it
will attain the highest degree of prosperity, when, under
a government such as ours, with all the richest of svil,
all the activity of our manufactures, we shall ourselves
enjoy that peace which is called for by the wishes of the,
world; that honorable and secure psace which shall res.’

to support at once, a maritime wary dnd two continental

“Sir—I have this day received information of te
discovery, in New-York, of a very extensive scence
of forgery of British Licences. From the intelligence
communicated to the Magistracy of this city, by the
New-York Police, there is every reason to believe
that many of the forgeries ha®@: been disposed of in
Baltimore, to the southward of that city ; it may be
of importance to the commercial interests that this
information be communicated as early as possible ;
and therefore I have taken the liberty of addressiig
this letter to you, as I cannot conveniently see the
Major, in whose hands I have placed the papers:
